hillary clinton's was. >> i could not agree with more. in terms of what we're going to hear from panetta, he will say the same thing from hillary clinton. essentially the same answers that he has already given in many interviews over how many months since the benghazi attack. what we can expect to hear from congressional republicans are the same sorts of disrespectful and antagonistic ill-informed things we also heard during the hearings of hillary clinton and even chuck hagel. >> heather: so not iminformed responses. i'll toss this question to you. they did indict the department of state, this is a quote, with shocking irresponsibility to protect american personnel at benghazi. the fact is the intelligence community and the department of state, they were sharing reports mostly provided by the c.i.a. for months that were outlining the growing threat in benghazi and, indeed, it was focused on western influence particularly the u.s. those requests early on for additional security prior to the attack went unanswered. you are satisfied with that response from panetta? >> yeah, i think what i
pollster for president bill clinton. pat, what did you think? >> he was better than hagel in the hearing. >>gregg: that is not saying much. >> he got caught up in the drone stuff and making incredible statements. what came out because the same day he testified we had outgoing secretary of defense panetta, went to testify on benghazi and told us what we learned. two weeks ago, we talked last week about the difference between what panetta and clinton said about iran versus hagel, and two weeks ago when they went on "60 minutes" we called it the biggest pay off in history. in that show, i remember suggesting one of the reasons that came out of hillary clinton's testimony was interesting to pursue, what was the president doing? we now know the president wasn't engaged. they had a 5:15 minute meeting that was preplanned and he did not talk to secretary of defense, clinton, and according to panetta, talked to no one. what we have a foreign policy that is coming apart. >>gregg: you were in the carter administration. all hands on deck the. >> the president himself, for ten, 15, 20 hours a day, i
the previous eight years of the bush administration and the previous eight years of clinton administration. i can continue to go back, so i do not think they he are serious about negotiating. it just gives them more time. >> reporter: the general says the u.s. along with other nations should use covert operations to thwart iran's nuclear development. gregg? >> molly henneberg. thanks. >>> the white house says it expects the senate to confirm president obama's nominee for defense secretary. white house press secretary jay carney defending former republican senator chuck hagel saying that he will be an excellent pentagon chief. now, this comes after a fiery confirmation hearing with members of the senate armed services committee. he faced some tough questions including this one from senator james imhoff. >> why do you think the rainan foreign ministry strongly supports your nomination to be the secretary of defense? >> i have a difficult enough time with american politics senator. i have no idea, but thank you. >> senators could vote as early as this week. washington times columnist charlie hur

not been willing to sit down with the clinton, bush or obama administration. iran recently announced it will add new machines to speed up the ability to enrich uranium. mahmoud ahmadinejad says iran's program is for civilian purposes. but the u.s. and other nations believe iran is trying to build a nuclear weapons arsenal. one fox military analyst says the offer for bilateral talks probably won't go anywhere. >> probably just a signal to let the europeans think we are trying. it is a feel good thing but it's not going to happen. let's be realistic about it. i think we have to start moving out and taking covert measures, not overt. covert measures with others to ensure that they do not get nuclear weapons. >> general mcinerney says they are stalling to develop more weapons. >>> the vice president's gesture may be falling on deaf ears as they unveil their new warplane. the plane called the dominant 313 is made in iran. according to the nation's military it combines a speed of a fighter jet with the firepower of a bomber and can evade radar but none of the planes can be confirmed. >> mo
famously denied. i never deny or contradict and i sometimes forget. think hillary clinton and leon paneta and susan rice and john brennan, all part of the parade of prevaricators in the hearings and media interviews and denying and forgetting what happened in the u.s. mission and a c.i.a. safe house in bengazi in september 11th 2012, protecting the boss is critical despite the fact he won reelection with a campaign unsullied by the hint that his team misguided the attack. we found out the president went missing that night as four americans fought for their lives and lost. this latest startling tidbit that obama was out of the touch with with testimony from leon paneta and in a letter senate to the senate runs by the white house. they demanded answers to key questioning, questions. did anyone get in touch with the libya government to get help. white house said no, not that night but the following. september 12th after the u.s. ambassador and three other mirns met their deathings. it turns out former secretary of state clinton and mr. obama spoke to each other during the attack but neither
for bill clinton. so, we will start with the president. benghazi. campaign stuff. gentleman, what do you say? >> it is not campaign stuff. that was four months ago. we are in february and repeatedly learning more things because of the confirmation hearings. the republicans are doing a good job forcing the white house to answer more questions. although we have a lot more to learn. >> i was surprised and struck by the president's statement about benghazi. i know he wants to move forward. >> that was a stunning statement. i have never quite seen something like that, it reminds me of nixon and watergate. something is going on, when john mccain used the word "coverup" woodward was on with chris wallace and he said a lot of these are legitimate questions. we don't know...no one knows from the evacuees interviewed by the f.b.i., we don't know what the president was doing. there are four dead americans and what is happening, it is getting more and more the case that this is developing --. >> why would he even go from, doug? >> he raised the issue. >> here is what he is trying to do. he is trying
money. our economy is not growing because people are fearful. one of your great here rose, bill clinton, said there is about $2 trillion that people are sitting on. why? because they have no confidence in sure ty in the marketplace. we have a democrat senate that hasn't produced a budget in four years! that's the only thing they're charge to do do is get a budget. the president submitted a budget, yet not one democrat will vote for it. until we get our fiscal house in order, but you guys can't even get a budget through the senate. >> rick: brad, i got to ask you, because the republicans, talking about getting their house in order, the republican party is split on a unifying message for a way forward. we're hearing sort of cracks in the wall on the sequestration debate on immigration. it doesn't seem like the republicans are in lock step on a lot of issues. i'm wondering how they can combat this president and keep him from pushing his agenda forward when they're not really on the same page themselves. >> we are on the same page. we are with fiscal responsibility. we're on the same page o
2016 and about a year from now. we'll be talking about the 2014 election. will hillary clinton run. now president obama has to capitalize and i think he's got to get some type of landmark legislation signed into law by the summer. >> interesting that you bring up legislation because the president will talk about issues that are so important to our nation, but then he's got to convince congress to act and acted in a bi-partisan way. it may cost money. i want to show you this fox news poll about how americans are reacting to the potential if there were to be another economic stimulus. 61% of americans oppose that idea. so even if the president could get congress to agree to oppose legislation that he wants, do we have the money to pull it off? >> no, and republicans are not going to go for that. i mean, that's clear. they were not enamored with president obama's inaugural address which was really loved by the left. i think he's going to have to change tactics a little bit and we're seeing some reports that anything that the president proposes that would cost money would have to be offset
the first four quarters of '83 and it extended through bill clinton. we are going to lose a lot. you know, these people are a precious natural resource. you can't get back a year of unemployment for a person. it's a tragic loss of a perishable asset. >> and that downward negative growth, meaning not growth in the fourth quarter, a lot of folks say. >> it's a decline. >> with the defense spending being down, we know that sequestration is looming. that is going to cut defense spending, like it or not, if it's not resolved. what is your take on sequestration and the economy? >> i mean, sequestration is also -- lards causing it to decline in the fourth quarter. but without sequestration, have you very slow growth. you had a lot of people shift income into 2012 out of 2013, which tended to offset the sequestration. but have you a serious long-term problem. i hope they don't go through with the sequestration. i hope they don't do. it i hope an agreement comes on. i am not hopeful, but i hope it does happen. >> we hope they are learning to you, dr. art laffer, thank you. >> my pleasure. >> outgo

made. secretary -- former secretary of state clinton testified multiple times, she talked about what happened. there was -- she took responsibility for this terrible event. there was an investigation independent in terms of what happened and how to prevent it from happening. it seems strange at this moment that senator graham is decide to go put a hold on this. to be honest, my opinion, it has more to do with the fact there's a serious division between former senator chuck hagel, a republican, and his republican brethren. it doesn't make sense this is the one that you decide to hold up on. >> senator graham has been specific and blunt and critical of this white house. he says the white house, as it relates to the president's activities, has, quote, delayed, denied, deceived and stonewalled. that's pretty tough. >> let's say for argument's sake you're right, it has nothing to do with senator hagel. why not put a hold on senator kerry? he's the incoming secretary of state. if you feel so strongly about the fact you need more answers, stop playing politics. the reality is it has more to
some heavy broadsides at the same time, one of which he fired at secretary of state hillary clinton during the benghazi hearing. let's take listen to what he said. >> and had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> your reaction? >> wow. look, here is the thing, rand paul, his dad, they're both doctors, but they're hugely different demeanors. his father gets wound up and he let's it rip and it makes people happy inside the libertarian conservative base. but rand paul says things of equal or sometimes greater potency, but you saw there, he delivers it as dead pan. it just comes across as this very even tone which is part of actually the way that he's been able to become more of a main stream figure than his dad was. >> "the joshuajosh crosshauler,e this, he's been able to tailor his libertarian ideology. he touted his investment on right to work investigate, his call to audit the federal reserve and even his leaders
to president clinton and author of "52 reasons to vote for obama." good to see both of you. dede, i want to ask you if you feel that the president is highlighting the human factor of these forced spending cuts by having the first responders behind him at that press conference or do you find rand paul's comments with total -- valid? >> i kind of think it's more like it's oscar weekend and you've got or goh and "lincoln" and then the show by president obama. lining everyone up, it really is just show and for effect. >> arthel: isn't that what they do? isn't that what presidents do? he's saying people are going to lose jobs and if not job, they'll lose lots of hours. >> we're going to lose everything if we don't start cutting spending. this isn't even enough. not only should we be for sequester, it should be super sequester. these were his cuts. these were the cuts he wanted. i have to agree with the tsa cuts. that's a good one. we should privatize that because that was a disas prosecutor the beginning. >> arthel: bernard, i want to ask you then if you feel that some of these points that rand paul
contributor and former pollster for bill clinton. our third insider, former new york congressman, john leboutillier, is home with the flu, john if you are watching, i know you probably are, we wish you well. speedy recovery and our prayers are with you. here we are discussing this and we five days away from the draconian measures that will kick in, automatic spending cuts. why are we discussing it when it did not have to happen? >> because there is a lack of leadership in washington. president obama only plays class warfare. he attacks the republicans for being agents of the rich. he is not serious. the republicans have no narrative, no argument, no plan of their own. both sides are playing politics. >> it is worse than that. we have cuts that are not across the board cuts but selected cuts, we are not touching social security or medicare or entitlements which are driving the cost up, and health care, which is driving the costs, they are not touched. these are selective cuts, and are triggered across the board and they have been offered for flexibility so we do not -- the president is
